A business that delivers food from area restaurants has begun operations in northwestern Pasco County and Hernando County.

To introduce itself to people in New Port Richey, Port Richey, Hudson and Hudson Beach and Spring Hill, Brooksville, Hernando Beach and Weeki Wachee, on-demand restaurant delivery company Bite Squad ran a promotion during the Labor Day holiday weekend. People who ordered through Bite Squad over its West Pasco-Hernando grand opening weekend received a special delivery deal for a year.

“We’re really excited to bring the Bite Squad experience to these communities and to delight new customers with a year of free delivery,” said Craig Key, chief marketing officer for Bite Squad. Bite Squad will offer delivery from more than 25 area restaurants at launch, including local favorites such as The Cove, Harold Seltzer's Steakhouse, Carolinas Cuban Cafe, Haiku Japanese Restaurant, Pizza Villa & Restaurant, Circle S BBQ, Enchiladas Mexican Restaurant, Luigi’s Pizza and Thai Spice. The lineup also includes chains like Dickey's Barbecue Pit, Bob Evans, Gator’s Dockside, Little Greek Fresh Grill and Firehouse Subs. Delivery is available within a seven-mile radius of participating restaurant partners.

“We’ve had a great response leading up to our arrival in this area. The restaurants are excited, and residents are pumped because who doesn’t like to chill out with their favorite foods delivered to their door?” said Key.
